Roland SH-3 - Vintage Synthesizer

via this auction

This appears to be the one in the video posted here.

Update: The listing states this has the MOOG style filter. It actually doesn't. Via Wikipedia: "Contrary to common belief, the initial version 'SH-3' did not infringe on the transistor ladder-filter patent of Robert Moog. It used a diode filter like the EMS VCS 3. The SH-3A does use a transistor ladder-filter and as a result can generate Moog-like sounds."


  1. And so the 'alternative fact' about the SH3 is perpetuated...

  2. You are right. I should have caught that. Post updated.
